    Climate Accounting - Hyperledger

    An example was given of applying accounting principles which justified cutting down trees to encourage growth of a spagnum bog because Spagnum is apparently 200 times more effiient at carbon capture and water retention than a wooded forest covering the same ground area and faster growing.
  5. The Good Homes Alliance seeks to drive up standards, performance and quality in new homes built in the UK. We have developed a concept built upon existing IP that digitises an assured performance process to enable a comprehensive outcome that will enable net zero (and other desirable outcomes such as health and wellbeing of occupants) to be met and verified. This concept would address a number of issues currently being discussed and deabted by the investment/finance/insurance/warranty sectors and would upskill design teams and constructors because of the built in on demand training that accomp
  6. Today marks the DT Hub's first birthday and we are celebrating the incredible successes that we have had as a community. To mark the occasion we are pleased to present the DT Hub's first Annual Benchmark Report. This first report aims to share with you, our community, the progress and learnings that we have made this past year. You will find a retrospective summary and analysis of the year as well as highlights, key findings and recommendations for the year ahead. In keeping with our motto of 'Learn by doing and progress through sharing' we would like to invite you to share your thoughts

    Digital Twins Standards Roadmap Published

    Hi there! I am interested in the British National Digital Twin. This website helps me a lot.

    The value of, and from, Data

    Thanks, Tom. Some people might be interested in this Forbes magazine interview with Davin Crowley-Sweet, Chief Data Officer at Highways England https://www.forbes.com/sites/douglaslaney/2021/02/01/data-valuation-paves-the-road-to-the-future-for-highways-england/?sh=4510bb46612c&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=109498131&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9xpRbsKEFsqfxsup9dXUfcWRvrxHE687_X-_FPyl93QAm2b520GA-mCmlwizF_e8UyDiX908Lbfr2dPkVcCnumXnwADw&utm_content=109498131&utm_source=hs_email

  11. TechUK’s Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) published a landmark report- ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’- on Thursday 25th February. The purpose of this report is to drive consensus around terminology, highlight key prizes associated with digital twinning across the UK, and to set out strategic recommendations for industry and Government as to how the UK’s digital twin ecosystem can progress and evolve long-term. The report also sets out a handful of recommendations, including that there should be a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary co-ordinating body to promo
  12. Hi IMF Community, You may find this workshop interesting: "4-Dimensionalism in Large Scale Data Sharing and Integration" Full details and Registration can be found at: https://gateway.newton.ac.uk/event/tgmw80 . The workshop will feature six presentations on state-of-the–art research from experts on 4-Dimensionalism in large scale data sharing and integration followed by a chaired Presenter's Panel. Each presentation will cover aspects of 4-Dimensionalism from the basics to Top Level Ontologies and Co-Constructional Ontology with each answering the question posed by the

    Hub Insights - Digital Twin Demonstrator

    @Nigel@CLA, thank you. We are just working up the scope of the demonstrator right now. What we are thinking about is something that will show the benefit of cross-sector information sharing, with a focus on improving net-zero decision making.

    Consolidating Concepts: Gemini Principles

    Hi @tombartley, thank you for this. I'm glad you support the general premise, and I agree aspects like Applications (Uses) and Observable elements are important. The goal of the workshop on the 11th is to test/challenge these headings with the community so Benefits may fall out. As I mentioned in the previous post, I've (shamelessly) taken the clause structure from the manufacturing standard and adapted the headings to suit. As the scope relates to an overview and principles standard (like ISO 19650-1) it behaves more like a guide to inform further standardization as opposed to a code

    We need to set a goal and then just do it

    @HenryFT the UK is certainly doing things but I've noticed interesting activity in Australia and US, particularly the Digital Twin Consortium. Where the latter organisation scores highly for me is that they are strongly leveraging decades of digital experience in the manufacturing sector - which I see as distinctly lacking in most discussions in the UK. By the way, call it a hunch if you like but it's just the way I walk.

    Diversity and inclusion

    I think the simple answer is 'yes to all of the above'. Although I know you're a member of Women in BIM it would be good to get greater engagement with the team. BPIC and Women who Code are a good shout too.
  19. I was reccently introduced to the work on Digital Twins that the City of Wellington is involved in. I share some links with the DT Hub community. Unlocking the Value of Data: Managing New Zealand’s Interconnected Infrastructure Plus, check out these links too.. which where shared with me by Sean Audain from Wellington City Council who is leading the Digital Twin activity in the city. "We have been on this trip for a while - here is an article on our approach https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/towards-city-digital-twins-sean-audain/ - the main developments since it wa
  20. a great document. The key thing is that it is a simple and clear set of principles. Not hidden in academic or standards langauge. It has always been about the value proposition - if we don't help the client understand this and articulate it, then they will not buy into Digital Twin thinking at the level at which is most important. I think more of the CDBB methods, process and documents needs to reference back to this document and the Gemini principles.
  21. @David Willans of Anmut recently sent me this invitation and I thought I should share it here (with permission). On 24th February, 11am GMT, Anmut are running a webinar about data valuation. When we mention the term, people tend to think it’s about setting a price for monetisation. That is one benefit of doing valuation, but it’s a third order benefit at best. The first and second order benefits are much more valuable and best described with two words, translation and focus. Translation Businesses are, in a simplified way, about choosing which assets and activities to allo

    Digital Twin Guidance - Standardisation & Data Structures

    not sure what that meant entirely @Peter Winstanley... but is the 'Information Management Framework' aiming to achieve a clear organisational structure?
  26. The IMF Architects and IMF Developers Networks will be merging today into the IMF Community Network. Any members of the IMF Architects Community not currently in the IMF Developers will be invited to join that group. The newly merged group will be renamed 'IMF Community Network'. The merger is to ensure a single point for information and discussion and to rectify any confusion or boundary setting that was not helpful to the community.
